Casey’s strategy is a political one, not one born of a desire to create quality schools.
Stanley Aronowitz, a professor, union activist and former Green Party candidate for governor, also spoke at the event and concurred with Casey, “I’m for the position that charter schools are ratty and should be abolished yet at the same time we should organize them – I agree with that position.”
It is a shame teachers unions, principally the American Federation of Teachers, are unionizing charter schools simply as a power play – not because those teachers are seeking to organize or because unionizing creates a better education. It’s further proof that teachers unions look out for the adults instead of the children.
